Description:This strap was used in hydrotherapy treatments at the Royal Pump Rooms. During treatment the strap was placed underneath the patient as they lay in the water. It was attached to ropes that were suspended from a frame above the hydrotherapy pool. Saline water in the hydrotherapy pool supported the patient's body while they performed excercises. The hydrotherapy pool was used to treat patients with rheumatism and polio.
